You're Welcome.
He's fitted a top box and together with the under seat compartment the cartage is very good.
If your route involves plenty of 50mph roads and hills you will be ringing it's neck. It's a bit out of its depth on faster roads.
I actually like riding it as I said it's very comfy.
I noticed some of the Peugeot Scooters are good value, have you had a look at these?

Hi Bondy, I have a coupe of things which might be of interest to you.

A Loncin 110cc Scooter 2014 with just 860 mies fro new. I bought this for the back of my Motorhome (which was sold 18 months ago now). it's excellent and used widely by the food delivery boys (Domino's etc) see link there are many stories of how great these bikes are http://www.workbike.co.uk it does 55mph and well over 100mpg.
I am looking for £500 for this.

I also have a 62 Plate Rieju 125 Marathon Pro with about 8k miles on it from recollection. Bought for my son who used it once in Sept when he then decided greenlaning wasn't for him. I am looking for £1100 for this with road wheels (not shown) + a set of off road wheels (all with great tyres).

If it's 20 miles each way I'd go for a bigger wheel than the fmx125. I had a Honda lead for an 18 month commute to the station and while it depreciated nothing I'm much happier with the c90 I replaced it with though I'm not commuting on it any more.

Gav's loncin looks interesting, kymco agility 125 or Honda innova or wave would be my choice.

My son has a CBF125 and it's not bad, 140+mpg as well! Couldn't believe it the first time I filled it up.
Goes quite well for a 125 4 stroke as well.

How was the Rieju Gav? Wondering about one for my son as he has to travel all year round.

Steve
